To Be or Not to Be (7/10)

This is an odd duck with weird tonal issues. There are plenty of gonzo Mel Brooks moments but the bulk of the movie is almost played seriously with its themes of Nazis and concentration camps. I can’t say I didn’t enjoy it but I’m glad they opted for a happy ending because they could have tried to make it overtly poignant which would have pushed this into The Day the Clown Cried territory.
